This is a delicious chocolate chip cheesecake with a chocolate wafer cookie crumb crust and chocolate glaze topping. The recipe calls for a springform pan, but a deep-dish pie plate would work as well.

The cheesecake is baked in a chocolate cookie crumb crust and extra chocolate chips and cream make up a delicious ganache.


Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F/180 C/Gas Mark 4.

  2. Combine the chocolate cookie crumbs and butter; stir to blend thoroughly. Firmly press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake the crust for 5 minutes.

  3. In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy; gradually add the sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

  4. Stir the vanilla and 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips into the batter.

  5. Pour the cream cheese mixture into crust. Bake the cheesecake for 40 minutes; turn the oven off and leave the oven door ajar. Leave cheesecake in the oven for 30 minutes.

  6. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack.

  7. Cover the cheesecake and place it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or until thoroughly chilled.

  8. Melt the remaining 2/3 cup chocolate chips in top of double boiler; gradually stir in whipping cream. Stir over low heat until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and spread or drizzle over the cheesecake. Chill thoroughly before serving.
